Earlier today there was a shooting at Charles University in Prague—one of our host institutions in the Czech Republic. The Fall 2023 semester for our Prague programs ended on schedule today, and we can confirm that all CET students have checked out of their apartments and are now on their way home or traveling independently. We can also confirm that all CET staff and local Czech roommates are safe and accounted for.
While gun violence is extremely rare in the Czech Republic, we will continue to monitor these events as we prepare for the Spring 2024 term beginning on January 17. Our thoughts are with the victims’ families and all of the students, staff, and faculty of Charles University during this difficult time.
